Karelia has released Sandvox 2.8 with fixes for minor incompatibilities with OS X 10.9 Mavericks, as well as an issue with partially drawn Site Navigator icons (particularly on Mavericks). The Web site authoring tool also restores word-wrapping to long site menu titles on certain designs (and sub-menu titles on all designs), fixes an alignment issue in the sidebar with Facebook Like buttons, fixes a problem with extracting non-image media files from sites, and improves options for filenames for better compatibility when transferring documents via legacy filesystems. As with many of this week’s software updates with Mac App Store editions, Sandvox remains at its previous version number (2.8.6) at Apple’s software storefront. ($79.99 new, free update from Karelia or the Mac App Store, 38 MB, release notes)
Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.
